Making Memorial Day meaningful for kids can be challenging. Especially for little children. They are too young to understand the concepts of military service and sacrifice. They can and will remember though what we, the adults, do to observe this day. It’s possible to create your own commemoration that is meaningful for your family and can be woven into your activities. If your family is doing something special today ask your child to draw a picture about it. Let your child know that this picture is important and that you will be sending it to someone else to let them know that you are thinking about them. Cards and pictures can be sent to veterans or those on active duty, especially overseas. Creating a care package is another service that a family can do and little ones can help. Even little actions can have great remembrance. What are your suggestions for other families?
